    Mount Saint Joseph Academy has been a great experience for my daughter and my family. From the president of the school right down to the faculty staff and of course at the heart of it all the students. The girls learn to take responsibility for their education here. I have met the finest and kindest young women in this school. So glad to be a part of the Mount Family.

    Show me the money should be this schools motto. What an embarraasment for Christians to call this one of their own. We were so disapointedby the reception we received there. My c daughter will not return. The only time rhey care for the poor or downtrodden is for a photo opt. Crazy as it seems but this time the apple DID fall right back under the tree and onto the root!

    Attending Mount Saint Joseph Academy was the best decision I ever made. I graduated in 2012 and am currently enrolled at a competitive liberal arts college. MSJA provided me with the tools I need to succeed not only in college but in life. The friendships I made at MSJA will last for a very long time and are with some of the brightest finest young women I have ever met.

    I think our school and its faculty helps the students take responsibility for themselves in every aspect of academic and spiritual life. The girls that graduate from Mount St Joseph Academy are the most mature and responsible young women that I know and are on the right track to become tomorrow's leaders!

    This school has a long tradition of excellence in every area that never waivers. The education is excellent but more importantly they provide an enviroment that creates and molds young girls into confident and intelligent women who are capable responsible and productive adults. They leave there with the skills to be tomorrow's leaders and role models for the generations that follow. I had a daughter that graduated in 2005 and one that will graduate in 2013. We have always felt by far this school is like no other we have ever encountered. I can only say how grateful we are to have found a school like Mount St. Joseph Academy for our daughters.

    Mount Saint Joseph Academy has been a wonderful school for my two girls to attend. Both highly motivated students the Mount provides an excellent challenging education for them with caring teachers who strive to bring out the best in the student. There are so many amazing opportunities afforded to the students that it is impossible to take advantage of all that is offered at this school.
